Smartdrugs Instead of Coffee
I've come to use hydergine and piracetam much in the way that I used to use coffee, but without any of the nasty side effects that I experienced from caffeine. Both increase my mental clarity, alertness, improve my concentration, enhance my memory, sharpen my verbal acuity, and can even be used synergistically for a unique effect unlike either on their own. But it's hydergine, in particular, that acts as a mild antidepressant. Piracetam has the added feature of increasing my auditory sensitivity, much in the way that marijuana does, without the high, and allows me to experience heightened attentiveness to detail when listening to music.
